If you can manage to wait that long, I have a feeling you'll think it will have been worth it. GSII is probably not too far away from EOL being an entire generation old, while the nexus 4 will be supported for quite a while.

Greetings, and welcome to AF. I've never owned a gs2, but I've heard it's a great phone.

Well, I ordered a Nexus 4. Currently not in a contract, so I can wait. Will run the Nexus on Straight Talk.
